Our facilities

Our facilities are located in six major cities across England, each providing laboratory services to surrounding hospitals.

We have facilities in Liverpool, Barnsley, Birmingham, Bristol, Oxford and Southampton.

Our laboratories in Liverpool, Birmingham, Bristol and the Clinical Biotechnology Centre near Bristol are further licensed to develop and manufacture GMP-grade cellular and molecular therapies.

We continue to invest in the facilities and infrastructure required to realise the potential of advanced therapy medicines.  A new build in Barnsley opened in November 2020 with a suite of four GMP grade clean rooms alongside development, QC and closed-processing laboratories plus cryovat storage.

We are also expanding our capacity for molecular therapies within NHS Blood and Transplant, with a large extension to the Filton site (north of Bristol) that will more than double plasmid output and introduce parallel viral vector production. The new Clinical Biotechnology Centre is due to open in 2022.
